I am soooo late posting this. Of course I had to wait until it was ok to post and then time just got away from me. Well anyways here is a session that was an absolute blast to photograph. I’ve known Meredith for several years. Her mom and I worked together for quite some time. We are both living in the dance world. My daughter is a competitive dancer and she used to be. Her love of dance continues as she coaches a local high school dance team.
So enough of the back story! Meredith contacted me for a super secret session right before New Year’s Eve. She had a secret to share that she just couldn’t keep to herself anymore. She was pregnant and wanted to surprise her husband at the session!
She had to talk him into doing a session in winter on a horribly ugly and dreary day. If memory serves, I actually think it rained right before their session too. He just did not understand why it could not wait till spring. She was able to get him to agree since it was presented as a New Year’s Resolution mini session.
Meredith had brought theses chalk boards for them to write their resolutions on. He wrote that he wanted to get into shape onto his resolution board and of course Meredith wrote “You are going to be a daddy.” On the count of three they turned around to show each other their signs. The look on Brent’s face as it registered what her sign said was priceless.
I absolutely love that I was able to capture his reaction and this special moment between them. Looking back on their session today, I still got the goosebumps looking at it. Enjoy a few snipits from their session!
Congratulations Meredith and Brent. You are going to be amazing parents.
